Valentino New York Sala Bianca 945 Event

Valentino New York Sala Bianca 945 Event

Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli hosted their first Valentino Haute Couture show in New York City on Wednesday (December 10).

The one-off special show, which was an homage to the designer’s famous 1968 white collection, was in celebration of Valentino’s Fifth Avenue flagship store, attracting many celebrity guests who are all big fans of the brand.

Emma Roberts: The young actress instantly caught my eye in her uber-sweet Valentino sugary pink frock with flared cuffs and a multicoloured floral collar. While I love the contrasting mauve Valentino clutch, the Valentino taupe pumps don’t work for me.

Padma Lakshmi: The TV host never fails to provide a jaw-dropping moment, this time wearing a super-sweet Valentino orange-hued mini dress amped up with a pair of sexy black over-the-knee boots.

Karolina Kurkova: I was charmed by the statuesque beauty, who was serving up lace and colourful florals. Her bold, intricate look was enhanced with red pumps, which matched her glossy lips, and a hot-pink clutch. She can do no wrong.

Olivia Munn: The ‘Newsroom’ actress, like Padma, opted for a breathtaking orange hue. The dress some might deem too twee, but I’m loving the flirty appeal. The orange lip is to die for, as is the colourful butterfly-print Valentino clutch for an interesting contrast, but the Rockstuds are not working for me here; neither the colour nor the style gel as well as I would’ve hoped.

Sofia Coppola: I’m not surprised to see the director keep to a more subtle colour palette and style. The only flourish here is the coloured feathered collar on her costume Valentino frock.

Nicky Hilton: The socialite, who often wears Valentino, was not a surprise guest at this event. Wearing a Resort 2015 colourful striped coat, some might deem this look an eyesore, but I’m enjoying the mix of colours and, unlike Olivia, the Rockstuds were perfectly in tune with the look.

Katie Holmes: With so much colour on this red carpet, Katie took a more muted approach, wearing a Valentino Resort 2015 dress comprising a simple black top with a black pleated skirt accented with red stitchwork. Once again the nude shoes don’t work with the look, but I do love the red Valentino clutch.

Olivia Palermo: The socialite, who is a close personal friend of Valentino Garavani, wore a Pre-Fall 2014 cropped jumpsuit with a lace bodice for a look that was decidedly more risqué than we are used to. As much as I love Olivia for her keen eye for accessorizing, I want to strip back a lot of what she has going on here, starting with those feather-accented Aquazzura Madison pumps and the Charlotte Simone Popsicle fur stole.

Jaime King: The actress wore a Valentino Resort 2015 colour-block dress, which when you look at the other attendees feels a bit like she was overdressed.

    Padam Lakshmi is perfect, I love that dress with those boots. Emma Roberts looks lovely as usual but I don’t like the accessories she chose, most of all because of the striking colors, the shoes and the bag don’t work together. Olivia Munn and Karolina Kurkova both look great.
    Olivia Palermo… why all those accessories?!? There’s too much going on in her outfit, less is more.

    Karolina and Nicky.

    Emma looks lovely. the rest is so so

  5. Yeliz December 11, 2014 at 22:14 #

    None of these looks got me excited to be honest. I guess Emma looks good from the ankles up.

    Emmas is interesting. Cute dress. Not a fan of the other dresses here.

    Nicky, Emma, Karolina, & Jaime are my faves here. Olivia’s Munn’s dress is lovely but the shoes killed it and the other Olivia over did it this time for me.

    Sofia is always a snooze. She is NO fashion icon.

    Emma and Nicky are my favorites, although that is partly because I just love color, especially pink!

    Olivia’s look is an eyesore for me! She needed to give those shoes to Katie, and ditch every other accessory, except the bag.

    Emma, Sophia, Padma, and Nicky Hilton look great!

    I like Emma, Olivia and Sofia’s looks. Karolina and Nicky’s dresses are ugly.

    Karolina is another BDOTW contender for me. I just love the way she plays with the colors. Amazing.

    Love Emma’s dress! That patterned collar is amazing! I like the colour of the bag and the shoes are ok (even though she could have chosen better ones)

  14. Christine December 11, 2014 at 12:36 #

    Nicky and Emma are my favorites

  15. Iva December 11, 2014 at 11:16 #

    Karolina & (the exact opposite) Sofia for me.
